He stayed here for 3 nights with our elderly parents, the rooms were very clean. Fresh and licely decor throughout, or rooms had bathrooms with shower. Breakfast was continental, lots to choose from, so if you left hungary was your own fault. Owners were so nice thanks for a great stay

Nice, clean guest house, centrally located. Breakfast was mainly cold and pre-packed offerings but there were eggs (boiled and scrambled) available. Hosts were friendly and helpful, good value for money.

Centrally located Bed and Breakfast with off street parking. Proprietors were both very friendly. Ample selection of food for continental breakfast. Room clean and comfortable. Only drawback was our room was at top of three flights of stairs. I would definitely book in here for any future visit to Oban

A well-located B&B with off street parking and a helpful host. The self service breakfast was made up mainly of packaged produce. The bedroom and bathroom and wifi were adequate. We found the mattress rather lumpy.

Ideal base to visit Oban and the surrounding area. On site parking is a great benefit. The location is close to the centre of Oban and the waterfront, the 4 minute walk is on flat ground. The rooms are clean and adequate size and the breakfast choice and quality are superb. Booking and checkout were friendly and useful local advice...
